The Spartans (6-6, 4-3 WAC), who scored 28 points off Tulsa turnovers, must defeat Fresno State next weekend to become bowl eligible. A win also would give San Jose State just its second winning record since 1992.

Rislov broke the school's record for completions in a season. He has 257 -- 14 more than Mike Perez's previous mark set in 1987/
After Ricky Tallant kicked a 29-yard field goal early in the third quarter to pull the Golden Hurricane to 42-24, Ferguson scored his third touchdown of the game from six yards out
In the fourth quarter, Uril Parrish had a seven-yard TD run and caught a 14-yard pass from Gooch for a score, but Tulsa could not avoid its third straight loss.
